Earlier this month the Electoral Commission released their guidance on the Lobbying Act which comes into force from 19 September, 2014. To help your organisation fully understand the implications of the Act, and to support you to decide whether your organisation needs to register and what activities may be regulated, Bond is hosting a free briefing meeting with representatives from the Electoral Commission on 5 August.
When: 9:15am – 12:45pm, Tuesday 5 August, 2014.
Where: Bond, Society Building, 8 All Saints Street, London, N1 9RL.
RSVP essential: We expect this to be a popular meeting so please email Cara Bevington (firstname.lastname@example.org) to reserve your place.
The meeting is open to all organisations affected by the Lobbying Act: those involved in campaigning as well as CEOs and trustees. The Electoral Commission will present their guidance and there will be a Q&A to clarify anything you find unclear. There will also be presentations from NGO representatives coordinating the civil society response to the Act.
If you are unable to attend, but would like to receive more information from Bond on the implications of the Lobbying Act and how civil society plans to respond, please register your interest by emailing Cara Bevington.
We hope to see you on 5 August!
Cara and the Bond Policy and Campaigns team.
